A line with slope passes through the point (−12, 16). Homework Help ✎

  1. What is an equation of the line?

    Remember that the formula for the equation of a line is
    y = mx + b.

    Substitute the slope for m. Then, substitute the given point for x and y, respectively.

    Solve for b.

  2. What is the x-intercept of the line?

    Substitute 0 for y in the equation from part (a).
